‘A ‘Booker book’’ – The Illuminations by Andrew O’Hagan

It has everything their juries love: war, personal tragedy, meditations on the nature of memory, two interlinking narratives, a story that ‘crosses generations’, and, of course, the middle class’ – Benjamin Judge reviews Andrew O’Hagan’s The Illuminations

‘An intense, gripping, and emotional piece of work’ – Out in the Open by Jesus Carrasco

‘Yes, I shook my head every now and then when reminded of the work of my favourite writer, but I didn’t even come close to putting the novel down. I was hooked. I wanted to know what the boy was running away from, I wanted to know if he’d escape, I wanted the old man to be the force of good he appeared to be, and not another villain in disguise. I cared’ – Fran Slater reviews Out in the Open by Jesus Carrasco
